First of all, this is large post - "LP", which can be seen in large size after you click on the picture itself.
About the picture:
The Sun was scorching and I was looking for an interesting motive and I was lucky enough to spot this dragonfly perching on a dry wild reed. It was me who had to take care moving not too much so that this insect couldn't feel my presence nearby.
I tried to avoid the OE in the picture but at some spots you can even find it as I could not avoid it because of strong sunlight in the afternoon time of the day but the day was lovely to take some shots from this dragonfly while getting sunbath ;-)
Hope you enjoy the "large version" of the picture too!

Hi Paras, nice to see you on TN!!
Good sharp capture of this lovely dragonfly.
Great DOF, which isolates the subject perfectly.
Very good lighting.
My humble opinion: I think that the format you chosen is not appropriate for this kind of photo.
I would have also cut on the right to place the dragonfly in the corner. Please, don't offend :))
My warmest regards.

Nice pic and fantastic large version which I love so much!Congrats!
I also agree with Vanda...Yes ,I think you could put your dragonfly a little in the corner.Decentralized images are more interesting ;).
Thanks for sharing you nice job,thanks also for visiting my gallery.I appreciated it!
I like the notion of a smaller image from time to time. It gives me time to focus on the important part of the picture... Excellent work.
